How do I temporarily close adoration?
Sometimes you must close the adoration chapel for several hours (e.g., cleaning, funeral, Holy Week).
Here's a guide for the steps involved and other considerations.
Step 1: Close Hours on the Schedule
First, close one or multiple hours on the Schedule page. We recommend the following steps:
Click Edit Schedule, select the range of hours you want to close, and click Edit Selected Hours.
Select These dates, click the Availability checkbox, and select Closed.
Click the Title checkbox and enter a reason why the hours are closed.
Click Save to close the hours.
Step 2: Send a Bulk Message
After closing the hours, you will see the list of affected adorers. We recommend notifying them that adoration is closed by sending a bulk message.
When you close adoration in We Adore Him, several things are affected:
These hours appear as unavailable on the schedule, with the hour's title explaining why. Adorers cannot sign up for adoration on closed hours.
Existing commitments remain on closed hours, but no commitment reminders are sent, and visits are not automatically created.
Existing substitute requests for these hours are paused. You can cancel them if you like.
The Adoration Check-in Kiosk will not display the adorer names to check in for these hours.
The commitment date will appear as "unavailable" on the adorer's dashboard.
